Canon EOS 70D review – Metering

The EOS 70D uses the same tried-and-tested 63-zone Dual Layer SPC metering system as found in both the EOS 60D and 7D. Again, as standard, the 70D has evaluative, partial, centreweighted, average and spot metering. With such an array of different metering options, I encountered no problems when trying to expose an image correctly.

The evaluative metering system works well, although it does have a tendency to expose images 0.3-0.7EV brighter than I would like.
